Mixer Feedback & Ideas

We love hearing from our customers. To help us build the best version of Mixer ever, we have partnered with UserVoice, a third-party service, to create this site to hear your ideas and suggestions. The teams working on Mixer regularly review the ideas and incorporate them into product planning discussions. While we can’t guarantee any specific features or timelines, we will read all suggestions, and we may also merge and rename suggestions for clarity.

Thanks for helping us to improve Mixer!

  1. Remove Rebroadcasts as Live

    Streamers should not be allowed to rebroadcast previous content as Live. The whole concept of Mixer is to interact with viewers. Let's reward the streamers who are actually streaming!

    I just noticed that kwebbelkop is rebroadcasting 24/7. All he is doing is stealing views from "live" streamers, taking advantage of his Youtube celebrity status.

    Before anyone hates on this, I really enjoy kwebbelkop when he's live!

    Also, the entire chat is full of trolling, harassment and spam, since there is no moderation. Viewers are hosting and following him, instead of supporting live streamers. Most of the don't even realize that…

  2. Search by game should show streams that previously featured that game

    I'd like to find people who stream games I like, but there may be few or no people streaming it depending on the time of day. There should be a section below the people actively streaming that shows channels that have streamed the game recently (in the past two weeks or so).

  3. gametest titles

    I believe it would be great if you guys added in a game title like "Game in development" I was trying to stream hyperun and a couple of other pre-alpha games, and couldn't even put it into a correct discoverable search term.

  4. Up and Coming Page Suggestions

    I like the idea of the Up and Coming page, but feel it's being neglected or otherwise not as effective as it could be.

    1) I think the UaC page should feature a limited number of streams (12?). And these should get rotated out on an hourly basis (or some amount of time) and a new set of up and comers can get in.

    Currently, the page can be near infinitely scrolled down and people below the top 12 are not benefited by this unless someone is real bored and just scrolls and scrolls.

    2) As has been said before,…

  5. Search for streams by title

    I can search for a user/channel name, but it would be helpful to search by title. This would allow me to look for things like "#raidfriendly" or "giveaway" or "Xbox".

  6. Hard to find missed streams?

    If you miss a stream it seems to be really hard to find.
    Is this service exclusively for live broadcasts?
    I tried searching for E3 Colliseum and gameslice with no hits
    I went to Youtube gaming site and immediately found.
    "E3 Coliseum - Project Scorpio..."

  7. Unified Search

    There should be a unified search option front and center on the mixer homepage. Currently the channel search is confusing, when I just want to search for a specific game. Users typically won't know the specific channel name they want to search for, but rather the game they're looking to search for. For the channel search to be front and center makes things confusing. I also encountered an even more confusing user flow when I typed my game search query into the channel search, and then got no results before noticing the game search. After typing my query into the…

  9. Mix it Up button

    Mix It Up button.

    This could be a fun new way to discover new and random streamers across Mixer. A simple button that sends you to a random stream (in your rating group)? Like the stream? Stay and interact! Not for you? Hit Mix It Up again!

    Could have a fun animation, that encourages people to Mix It Up!

    Super simple but fun concept.

  10. Game and Stream Filters

    While I have seen a few topics already started talking about filtering for gaming platform discovery, there is another area that should gather some attention. Being able to distinguish console from PC is important, especially when people come into chat and ask "is this on Xbox?", but what about the stream itself?
    There are those of us out there who prefer to watch a stream with or without a web cam, or even just no mic or webcam. I've had other streamers and viewers from my chat agree with me on this. When looking through "Up and Coming" or anywhere…

  11. Follower Tab

    I think it'd be really cool to have a tab in Browse next to "Following" labeled "Followers" which when clicked shows all the live channels that follow you.

  12. Sort search results based on applicable statistics

    Currently, search results return what appears to be an unsorted list of results. It would be helpful if searching returned results weighted by stats or "relevancy"

    For example, if you search for Markiplier, you get a ton of channels that start with "markiplier" but none of these are the markiplier you're probably looking for. In fact, Markiplier is the last channel in the results list.

    Anyway, hope that makes sense!

  13. Add Note to "Following" Page

    When you go to the "Following" page and click through the games, and no one you are following is streaming that game you simply get a "No channels found" message. In my opinion, this should be expanded to something like "No followed channels streaming {game}. [Click here] to see non-followed channels" or something of that sort.

  14. Toggle Xbox Streamers

    With the huge influx of Xbox streamers can we please get a toggle option to filter them out of the lists? they are everywhere and just complexity spamming the lists.

  15. Categories

    Adding all types of Categories to Beam so you can find what you want to watch (specifically)
    On the Beam home page there is
    Featured - All Streamers - Up and Coming - Teams - Homes (mock image attached)
    Homes (or Categories) will drill down/animate another bar of all the homes that are a part of Beams Family
    All - PC - Console - Mobile - Creative - IRL - Music - Esports (and we can add in any others that are missing) and now the newly added Console Broadcasting!
    Any broadcaster can tag their stream to be in a…

  16. Tab For Streams That Are Beginning

    So I was ending my stream last night and wanted to carry on the stream to someone else, but the person I chose had been streaming for eight hours and were actually just ending. Whoops! It's always really cool to catch a stream that is just starting up and be there from the beginning, so could there be a tab that shows streams that are in the first 5-25 minutes? (right after setup and testing, but before really getting settled in to the flow)

  17. Mouse Over Descriptions on Channel Thumbnails

    Not sure if this should go under Discovery or Interface, sorry. As a new Beam user, I'm finding it difficult to spot channels of interest to me because the search results don't provide channel descriptions.

    This is especially problematic for the miscellaneous non-game stuff, as well as offline channels.

    I'd suggest mousing over a channel's thumbnail in search results should bring up that channel's greeting/about text.

  18. Have a category of broadcasts made by Windows 10

    Now with the new system to broadcast live through the Windows 10 game bar, it would be nice to have a category or option to watch streaming made with this feature

  19. Alphabetic Game List Order

    I'm not sure if this has been requested already, but wasn't able to find anything.
    Could we get a game order option to be Alphabetical instead of by view count?
    Something like an icon A >Z and then an "eye" to switch between the orders.

    Thanks.

  20. Add a VR category, game independent

    Add a VR category, game independent. It'd be really nice to be able to sift through all VR-streams, without having to pick any particular game
